Summary/Abstract: This paper analyzes the structure of conference abstracts written by the authors of the Serbian speaking area, from the field of literature. We are comparing the abstracts by Philologists, Serbs, Anglists, Romanists, Germans, and Russians. The research is carried out in order to determine how much the abstracts of these authors vary by structure. During the analysis, the model of a Ukrainian linguist Tatyana Yakhontova (2002) was used. She applied this model in order to compare the conference abstracts of Anglo-American, Ukrainian and Russian authors. Our goal is to determine to what extent the authors philologists adhere to this model. First, we present theoretical data of the structure of the conference abstracts, as well as rhetorical steps and strategies by means of which they are structured. Then, after describing the methodological settings, the results of the research conducted on the corpus of fifty summaries have been represented. The given results have been shown in the tables. The analysis included, first of all, frequency of all steps, then the frequency of the rhetorical strategies in individual steps. The results have confirmed the hypothesis that the Anglists most often follow the rules of the abstract given by Yakhontov, followed then by Romans, Germans, Serbs and Russians.
